;)I'm guessing, based on the credits, that Williams worked on "Dice and Roll" directly?He is.i don't doubt it, he and the director are good frineds and fans of each other, also they worked together on Annabelle so I'm willing to bet money he's the composer which is AWESOMEWallfisch just Retweeted the Shazam! trailer. Does that mean he is scoring it then? Hybrid can you say anything about this?
On Millers water planet, those ticking noises happen every 1.25 seconds. Each tick you hear is a while day passing on Earth.@MikeOTM<br>Youíre absolutely right. Powell did an awesome job of staying within the musical sandbox of the SW musical universe but also was able to bring something fresh and original to the overall sound, something Star Wars really needs right now.Sweet. I've gotta say, this score surprised me in a good way. I've always loved Powell, but if you told me two years ago he'd write a Star Wars score, I'd have been hesitant about it. But Solo is really, really solid, even without the John Williams main theme. In fact, I like what Powell does with the JW theme better than the theme as JW wrote it.Wowww so many solo Powell!His part is not in the OST release...
No Paul Mounsey credits?Credits added !
<br>
<br>I didn't credit here JW for every arrangements of his theme & old SW themes that can be heard throughout the score.MoS, TASM2Badelt's "Solomon"?<br><br>This must be the "famous" Dark Knight reference that the "critics" are talking about.I could have sworn I had heard the Solomon theme and some of the same<br>Chords that Kraemer had used...<br>My mistake lol<br><br>And Balfe does seem like a genuinely nice person. Hell he even takes the time to put out unreleased music, not something most composers do. <br>That is exactly why I hate when people take personal jabs at composers (usually at Junkie XL for some reason). Itís fine to not like the music, everyone has different tastes, but donít criticize a composer for writing what he was asked to write.
I agree! He actually invited me to come to a recording session in London for this film, man it killed me that I couldnít afford to go. But I was so thankful he even thought to ask! Top notch guy.Say what you want about Balfe but he's a really nice guy, and always answers my questions on FB and others on twitter.I believe him as I didn't hear anything from Kraemer.I asked Balfe on Facebook if he used any of Kraemers theme and he said noI Know, Hybrid, just sayin' that i a fan of Benjamin Wallfisch's music Scores since lights Out to Blade Runner 2049 and i say this is another excelent Work from Wallfisch

Lol, the times when Hans needed less than 10 people to do a score. :D This one's a very fine soundtrack, though.


Hybrid Soldier2014-07-10 22:38:41
Why is that an issue ?

Back in the days you might have had one guy (in most cases, Nick) but he was doing the same amount ALL the additionals nowadays combined do, so where's the difference ? :)


Zimson2014-07-10 22:53:39
My comment was actually not meant to be judgemental. It's of course not an issure. I just find it interesting how things evolved over the years and I'm glad they have. ;)


Hybrid Soldier2014-07-10 22:56:04
And I was no replying with any animosity... lol


Zimson2014-07-10 23:22:57
I didn't get it that way but it seems we got us both a little wrong, lol. :D It wasn't a critique on the amount of people working nowadays on his scores. I just wanted to point out how the team grew bigger along with the movies. ;)

This has probably been asked hundreds of times but is there anywhere where Hans himself talks about, in detail, the additional music process (not the PR crappy interviews he gives to sycophantic magazines and sites), or could you explain it Hybrid. I think the casting of it as "he writes a theme and then says 'okay guys write my score'" is a lazy analysis. I don't care who did exactly what note, I'm just interested in the process, and how involved Hans is at each step.


Zimson2014-07-11 14:52:08
As far as I know for scores like Dead Man's Chest the process is something like this: Hans writes suites inspired by the film. This often starts before the movie is even shot and he also likes to hear the story from the director rather than reading the script. This can take a few months or so. Hans worked a month on the Jack Sparrow theme for example.
After that, when film material is available Hans and his additional composers work together and score the scenes. They often sit down and discuss, sometimes also including the director and other crew members. So, basically Hans is always involved in the process and thus it's absolutely justified that he gets top credits at the end. He's like the director of the score (and also the screenwriter in some way), someone who looks at the big picture rather than the details.
On other scores like Sherlock Holmes or Inception Hans and Lorne worked more separately, as far as I know. Lorne stated in an interview that he sees in which direction Hans is going and then tries to mimic the style or capture the vibe.
Of course I can give no guarantee that this is correct, but it's how I understood it.

I'd be more curious to know how Zimmer gives his directions for the movies he doesn't even see completly (as it is the case with all the Michael Bay movies he worked on). Not a critic at all, I'm just curious.

About "The House of the Spirits", I agree, it's a very fine score. I especially love the two last minutes or so of "Clara"

You are the best composer ever; I just love your music. I purchased several of your soundtracks and stored them on my iPod. Unfortunately, the soundtrack from ďThe house of the spiritsĒ was not available. If I donít ask too much, please advise where from can I purchase the soundtracks that iTunes are missing.
Keep up the fantastic good work. Your music is balsam to the soul.
